Have you looked at a photo and wished you were there, or wondered what the scene looked like to the photographer? Now you can bring your photos to life by adding motion and depth to your images. Author Rich Harrington reveals how you can transport your photos into a three-dimensional world using Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. The course shows you how to select the right images and resolutions; how to use masks and layers to build the composition in Photoshop; and how to animate the camera and light the scene in After Effects.
If you've never opened up Photoshop or After Effects, this probably isn't the best class to start with. Fortunately, there's a bunch of great training here on lynda.com that you can explore. Be sure to try out the Essential Training titles for both After Effects and Photoshop before watching this course. We also have a Documentary Photo Techniques course using Photoshop and After Effects that I produced that you can take a look at here online as well. Now we will take a lot of fundamental skills and build them up, but again, if you've never launched Photoshop or After Effects, don't start here. We're going to go fast, and we're going to move through a lot of different features quickly.
I promise it's clear and understandable, but you're going to want to come in with the foundation first.
